Abstract: 

This course pack provides an overview of energy systems modelling for an introductory 3rd year, 4th year, or graduate level course.  There are four main sections: Introduction, Optimization Models, Building Energy Models, and Energy-Economy Models. The introduction provides context on the importance and environmental impacts of the energy system through an engineering and socio-political lens.  Two types of optimization models are covered in section 2: capacity expansion and power system models.  An overview of solutions to optimization models through linear and mixed integer programming is provided.  Section 3 provides an overview of building energy modelling with practice problems on calculating wall r-values and using eQuest for basic building energy modelling.  Energy-economy models are then introduced including Input-Output, Computable General Equilibrium and Partial Equilibrium models.
